Ah.....can see a bit more now. It is a double rear axle truck, the other axle articulated, probably over uneven surface. Wheels look to be civilian pattern, but with British tyres. Could be a WW2 GMC in British service?

GMC yes, but I don't know nuffink else about it. Mark sent this to me, perhaps he has more details? It's just so that you don't all think my MOs are all missiles, latrines & Humbers ;-)

All I have been able to find out is that they were a trial in the late 40's for extra grip on a GMC, I was looking for a piece on tracks fitted to trucks and this cam up, thought it was worth a try.

 

Thanks Clive
